and disturbing news of the death of sean hoare, one of the first whistle blowers about the hacking going on at some of the newspapers when he worked under andy coulson. what are details on that? >> reporter: all right. so sean gives details to the news of the world. sean hoare's details of what happened describing the hacking and takes part in a "the new york times" expose in 2010 on the subject and one of those people who again and again and again says that top executives at news international, news of the world, knew what was going on. now, he's also believed to be an alcoholic or was a drug addict. he lived a very lively life. the police say his death is unexplained but not suspicious. he wasn't in good health. whether that could mean suicide or just some form of death because of overindulgence we don't know. whatever way we turn whether to rupert murdoch who only last week in the "wall street journal" said that minor mistakes have been made in the investigation but then says to the british people, sorry for what has happened. james murdoch who says quite publicly now he didn't know c

is another turn. they are saying sean hoar's death is not considered suspicious but it's an added layer into this whole story. >> an odd coincidence. on top of that two of the websites from murdoch newspapers were hacked into, one of them had a fake story that murdoch himself had died. it was a fake folk story but the ripple effects keep on coming. >> a hacking, a bit of a taste of their own medicine, perhaha. >>> if you are in the san francisco bay area and need work done on your bike, they're more than happy to help you out at mike's bikes. >> don't try to pay the bill with pennies. they don't want them and they're not accepting them. the shop rounds ever cash transaction down to the nearest nickel. >> really? >> nickel. >> shop owners say the policy saves them about 2,000 bucks a year because it takes time to count all those pennies in the till. it costs the government 1.7 cents to mint each penny. they're saying the penny is inconsequential to the budget anymore. >> it kind of is. who pays in pennies? more "world news now" coming up after the break, don't go far.

new day drops a new bombshell. on monday, it was the death of sean hoare, the first journalist to go on the record pointing the finger directly at former "news of the world" editor andy colson accusing him of actively encouraging phone hacking. police say his death is unexplained, but not suspicious. and in an ironic twist, the company accused of hacking got hacked themselves. murdoch's son paper had to quickly remove this fake headline on its paper last night. today's story makes no mention of parliament or their boss, rupert murdoch. the questioning is expected to take about three hours, but don't expect any detailed answers to direct questions about phone hacking. all three have said they will not answer questions that could in some way jeopardize the ongoing criminal investigation. matt? >> all right. stephanie gosk in london this morning. stephanie, thanks so much. michael wolff is the author of "the man who owns the news: inside the secret world of rupert murdoch." he is also the editorial director of "ad week" magazine. good to see you. talk about the dynamic. one of the bigge
